(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Portions of northeast Iowa got hit hard by last night's storms, mostly in Mitchell county. Several roads are closed due to flooding, and in Charles City, the Cedar River is still rising.
"Right now, we're at about 15 feet as a stage, and it's rising fairly rapidly," Charles City Fire Chief Eric Whipple told us.
Residents in Charles City are on high alert as the Cedar River continues to overflow it's banks.
"We're just trying to get the word out that the flooding is going to be taking place and we're working on notifying, even going door to door," Whipple said.
When the Cedar River hits 18 feet, it's considered to be at major flood stage. Monday night, it's expected to crest around 20 feet.
Over in Osage, crews are assessing damage from flooding that happened last night.
